"Anybody know the program SCORE for sleep scoring?

Who produces it? Is it any good? What is better for animal lab work"

The SCORE program was developed at Stanford Univ., largely Dale Edgar PhD
and his group.  It is very useful for monitoring sleep stages in mice on a
24 hour basis and can save enormous amounts of time if compared to hand
scoring.  It's accuracy, I believe, is quite good but probably not
perfect.  Then again, one expert human scorer will not give exactly the
same results as another, either.  SCORE is built as a kind of neural
network... it "learns" by examples and then performs on new data.
